We are very excited to announce the purchase of an Agency vehicle through a capital campaign we started in early 2019!
We are tremendously grateful to the Federal Government’s Ministry of Agriculture for the Local Food Infrastructure Fund, TLC Pet Food in New Hamburg; The Harold Ballard Foundation; and Expressway Ford Lincoln in New Hamburg for making this dream a reality.
Thank you to Tim Louis, MP (Kitchener-Conestoga) for this kind video message. We are so incredibly thankful to the community for the continued support.

59m · Today I announced Federal funding for an amazing initiative run by the Wilmot Family Resource Centre (WFRC)! WFRC has received $23,000 through the Local Food Infrastructure Fund (LFIF) for a van which will pick up and deliver produce to distribute through the Food Bank service at no cost to individuals and families who live on low-incomes.
This van will enable WFRC to increase the availability of local produce by picking up donations directly from local farmers who cannot deliver. It provides a sustainable means of transporting healthy food on a regular basis throughout our rural Townships!
Thank you to WFRC for all that you do!
